Grant Helps Transport More Grain By Sea

A FLOUR mill in Fife is set to benefit from the latest round of freight facilities grant funding to help them move more wheat by sea. Carr’s Flour Mills Ltd will receive around £357,000 from Transport Scotland to build new grain storage facilities at Kirkcaldy Harbour.
It’s estimated this will keep around 1.1 million lorry miles off the road each year, with 390,000 miles saved annually in Scotland.
Rob Munro, managing director of Carr’s Flour Mill, said: “A significant amount of the wheat delivered to the mill currently arrives by sea, with the smaller proportion being local wheat delivered by road. The expansion of the facilities at Kirkcaldy Harbour will allow for an increase in the size of vessels, which will significantly reduce road traffic.
“We are exceptionally proud that these essential works will help ensure the longevity of Carr’s Flour Mill and the port facilities, whilst also giving job security for our staff.”
